Pokemon Go creators are now inventing a Harry Potter AR Game


The creators of Pokemon Go, Niantic Labs, will soon be releasing their latest installment in augmented reality games.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, set to launch in 2018 has been co-developed by Warner Bros., Interactive and its new sub brand Portkey Games.

Apparently the game will allow players to roam the real world collecting power-ups, defending locations and exploring their environment.

Ray White spoke to Stuff Magazine editor-in-chief, Toby Shapshak.

AR is a big deal, it is probably going to be more prolific in terms of usage than virtual reality.

Pokemon Go in the first 3 months alone delivered 300 million dollars in revenue. At its peak in July last year it had 45 million daily users.

Harry Potter is even more well known so the potential market is significantly higher.

The interesting thing for me is how have cleverly they have found a way to extend themselves each time there is a new technology invention.
